Los Angeles, CA asked in Real Estate Law for California

Q: Can we sue a realtor for false information about a seller accepting our offer and terms?

We asked a realtor through email about a seller offering seller financing. The realtor said yes and so we submitted our loan approval and contact to the realtor and never heard back from the realtor.

A: It sounds like the Realtor was waiting for the best offer, before he/she accepted the financing. While that is not a very professional way to operate, I don't think you can sue the Realtor unless he/she went forward with the offer without telling you. I would call or write the Realtor and demand a return of your documents immediately. I would then find another Realtor.
